Compliance Risks to Consider Related to Contractual Arrangements with Independent Physicians

Many healthcare entities focus on the initial physician contract development/execution itself, often in a decentralized manner where multiple ‘’owners’’ are involved in getting the contract executed and supporting documentation is retained within different departments which can lead to inconsistencies in the documentation collection/retention process. In addition, many healthcare entities lack on-going centralized auditing and monitoring procedures of existing contractual arrangements with independent physicians to ensure there are no potential violations of the Anti-Kick Statute or non-adherence to contract terms. This podcast will discuss typical compliance risks and key areas organizations should consider when monitoring existing physician arrangements through on-going compliance audits.
